Red face Coach numbering

As a matter of note, Newell will skip over the 1300 series of numbers i.e. coach 1299 will be followed in production by coach 1400.

Hi, 1992 Album #7 is Coach #303. We don't know where the pic's came from as there have been some updated graphics added to the coach. We'll figure out how to post some updated photos. We have owned the coach for three years now and couldn't be happier.

Thanks for the information John. As a point of interest, which coach number was the last before the jump to 1200. I thought it was about 815 but I could be off.

David, nice looking coach.

My 1987 model (built Dec. '86) has a notation on the top right hand corner of each page of the original owner's "Coach Order And Price Schedule" of PL186. Reading the numbering history that Michael lays out ('83-'89), this looks like it could fit...do you agree?

Kim, I agree that for a coach built in late 1986, number 186 would be a reasonable number starting from 1 in 1983.

EDIT: Based on further investigation, 186 is probably too high a number for a 1987 coach built in late 1986. That number would probably belong to a 1989 model or possibly a 1988 model built right at the end of the model run. I would suspect the number you are looking for is in the range of #120 to #150. Brian (2 Dogs) found #139 marked on the bottom of his engine bay doors on his 1987 built about a month before yours so if his number is correct, yours should be in the 140's.

Album #4 in the 1987 section is coach #186.

Cheers

Hi, I'm Linda Schneider and my husband and I are the owners of the Bud Eisenlohr 1979 Newell. According to the information on the side of our counter next to the door, our Serial # is 351 ORE1O93D22O 9N
Engine # 6VFO38878DET92
GFAWR 1200#
GFAWR 18500#
GFAWR 30500#

Where would I find the build number? I can't find it in all the paperwork I have on the coach.

Without research by the factory, it is doubtful that the 'build number' could be determined for your coach. Any coach prior to 1983 did not include a build number in the VIN/Serial Number and even the accounting sequence number was not used that I know of.

Being a 1979, it is likely to be in the upper 200's or very low 300's but based on my understanding, there is little way to determine a build number for most of the pre-1982 coaches and it wasn't in the VIN where it is easily locatable until the 1990 model 2000's came out.

By the way, thanks for including the GAWR's and GVWR (there is a missing 0 in the Front Axle Weight Rating). I have been trying to get some idea of the Weight Ratings of various year and size Newells.

Michael & Georgia,

Thanks for the information on the 'build number' situation. At least I know that our coach is somewhere between the upper 200's - low 300's.

Please advise where I can locate the numbers on my 1987 coach. It is in album 3, the blue and silver coach.
Thanks,
Brian
